    Is the card reader meant to be remotely usable over Ethernet? Is this an advertised feature of the device?

    Also exactly what printer? The model number as well as the make...

    HP printers card reader

    Dont know I can access the printer okay..... turned on that windows computer and downloaded the photos to a thumb drive and got them that way. But forgot some of them... Now have to turn back on Energy hog slow Windows computer.
    HP big printer model 8700.....
    I printed out the long owners manual (since this model was a floor model clearance) BUT cant find where it might mention that part....
    Thanks

    Hence the question: it almost certainly can't do that. The card reader probably just lets you print directly from the card.
